While the fate of NBC's Heroes is still unclear, ABC is bringing a new series to its network about ordinary people with extraordinary powers. The Live Feed is reporting that ABC is handing out its first series pickup of the year to No Ordinary Family.
The series stars Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz as a husband and wife who discovers that their whole family has suddenly received super powers. The series also stars Autumn Reeser, Romany Malco, Kay Panabaker, Jimmy Bennett and Tate Donovan. Here's a rundown of the series below.
The Powells are about to go from ordinary to extraordinary. After 16 years of marriage, Jim and Stephanie's relationship lacked the spark it once had, and their family life now consists of balancing work and their two children; leaving little time for family bonding. During a family vacation set up by Jim in an attempt to reconnect, their plane crashes into the Amazon River. But this is where the fun starts for the Powells as they soon discover that something's not quite right. Each of them now possesses unique and distinct super powers. But saving and savoring their family life will be equally important as they try to find purpose for their new power and embark on a journey to find out what defines and unifies them. The Powells are a totally relatable family that happens to be a little bit amazing.
The series was created by Greg Berlanti and Jon Feldman and will debut sometime this fall on ABC. We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further details regarding this series as soon as we have more information.
